The Gujarat government has decided to promote students who are taking Diploma courses after class VIII and class X, to the State Board levels. The student will only have to appear for English and Gujarati examination being conducted by Board, to be at par with a regular student.
According to the Education minister Ramanlal Vora, the move aims to facilitate students of vocational courses to get admissions for higher education. The Government resolution issued on Thursday states that the State has decided to upgrade two-year post-standard-VIII technical courses, taught at Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs), at par with standard-X, and three-year post-SSC diploma, taught at Polytechnic colleges, at par with standard-XII. Education officials said that students completing two years ITI course after class X or its equivalent course, having passed NCVT or GCVT examinations would be treated at par with Gujarat Secondary Education Board or Gujarat Higher Secondary Education Boards standard XII or Gujarat Open School and could opt for higher courses. Additionally, students who complete three year diploma courses in polytechnics after class X would be treated at par with class XII pass students. Also, since these students would have studied one year more than class XII students, they may be considered for exemption of a year's study in college with 40 credit points under choice-based credit system.
